D. Domino “70’s chrome” housings and controls

 

This D controls family has
1) threadless-bottomed brake cable holes
2) threadless-bottomed start cable hole
3) threadless-bottomed throttle cable hole

 

“70’s chrome” means the brake levers appear to be chrome. The 60’s ones are chrome-plated steel, but the 70’s levers are actually polished stainless steel, like silverware. They are stamped (formed) from sheet metal.

DA DB  These had plain silver housings, no throttle assist spring and no balls on the tips of the levers.

D18 $20-00  L housing plain silver MMI#D18
D20a $25-00  L or R lever bare, no ball

substitute V5

substitute V5g

The V5 silver and V5g dark gray housings are exact replacements for D5. There are only two differences.

1) the brake cable hole is threaded-bottomless instead of bottomed-threadless. That means a 6mm adjuster must be added to the brake cable. That’s easy.

2) there is a small threaded hole on the bottom side for mounting a thumb button. It is unnoticeable.

DW0 DB0  Only some US mopeds had this Domino wrap-around throttle right control DW0. It had two versions of throttle cable hole: 1) threaded-bottomless (for a M5 adjuster) and 2) threadless-bottomed (for no adjuster) on ’76-77 Cimatti City Bike, ’77-78 Rizzato Califfo and others.

substitute V5Dg

housing D18b

DA2 DB2  These 1978-later throttles worked better thanks to the silver-dollar-sized throttle assist spring. The housing was longer, and the metal twist tube had more “inner” length  where the three-loop throttle assist spring goes. All subsequent Domino sliding block throttles had the throttle return assist spring.

DA3 DB3  From 1978-85 some US mopeds had Domino chrome levers with a diamond shaped mount for an integrated CEV switch. Everything was the same except the black housings had molded in switch mounts. 

The V5d and V5dg housings are exact replacements for D5d. The only difference is the brake cable hole is threaded-bottomless instead of bottomed-threadless. That means a 6mm adjuster must be added to the brake cable. That’s easy.

DA3m DB3m These controls were on ’84 Garelli Basic, ’83-84 Monza GT, and perhaps others. They have longer levers (155 instead of 140), longer grips (120 instead of 100) and diamond shaped mounts molded into the black housing for integrated CEV switches.

The DB3m left control has an M6 thread start cable adjuster, unlike all others in this family

V. Domino “70’s – 80’s Vespa” housings and controls

 

This V controls family has
1) threaded-bottomless brake cable holes
2) threadless-bottomed start cable hole
3) threadless-bottomed throttle cable hole

 

The right control (throttle and front brake) is a sliding block type, where the twist tube (barrel) has a spiral slot that moves a sliding block back and forth. The sliding block also contains a pinch bolt to attach the cable wire. So the throttle inner cable is a single-ended type that can slide out and be replaced separately. The left control has a “one finger” decompression lever instead of a “three finger” start lever, like most other left controls have. It does not need to be squeezed hard like the clutch start levers do. The engine starts when the decomp lever is released.

Abbreviations:   /B = blinker version    

 


vA vB vAd  These are on the earliest Ciao’s 1968-71. They have plain levers with no balls on the end, chrome plated steel not stainless steel. The throttle has no assist spring. The housings are silver and do not have threaded holes for brake light switches. That is what the lower case v means.

The right control housing does not have a lower mount for a “kill” button. The engine was stopped by pulling the decomp lever on the left control. Grips were gray 114220 R, 114221 L, except Ciao Lusso and later were black 122184 R, 122185 L.


housing V5

housing V18

VA VB  These are on early Ciao’s 1972-75. The tips of the brake levers did not have balls. The right control housing has a kill switch mount on the bottom, but not a throttle return assist spring. It is reachable by the right thumb without removing the hand from the handlebar, as required by 1973 US safety laws. The engine was stopped by pushing the kill button. The housings are silver and have threaded holes for brake light switches.

VA1g VB1g  These have plain gray housings. The right control has no throttle helper spring. It has a kill switch mount on the bottom but there was no kill switch installed there. Instead the kill switch was a separate clamp-on type, CEV round chrome, like the left side switch.

housing V5dg

housing V18dg

VAdg VBdg  Starting with this 1977 Bravo with blinkers, and then on all 1978 and later models, the right controls had throttle helper springs. The twist tube changed from D6 to D6A. The main throttle return spring in the carburetor is strong enough by itself, except when the cable is sticky or kinked or the handlebar is rubbing on the twist tube.

Diamond shape integrated switches on both sides, reachable by thumbs. This was a safety requirement in some countries.

 


housing V5ag

housing V18g

VA2g VB1g  These have plain gray housings. The right control has a throttle helper spring, just left of the grip. Compared to VK1g above, there is visible about 6mm more length in both the housing and the twist tube, to make room for the 3-loop torsion spring. 

The right control housing has a kill switch mount on the bottom, but it was not used on US models. Instead the kill switch was a separate clamp-on type, CEV round chrome, like the left side switch.

The V5,V5g and V18 housings are exact replacements for G5 and G18. There are only two differences.

1) the brake cable hole is threaded-bottomless instead of bottomed-threadless. That means a 6mm adjuster must be added to the brake cable. That’s easy.

2) on the V5 and V5g there is a small threaded hole on the bottom side for mounting a thumb button. It is unnoticeable.

substitute V5g

The V5 silver and V5g dark gray housings are exact replacements for G5. There are only two differences.

1) the brake cable hole is threaded-bottomless instead of bottomed-threadless. That means a 6mm adjuster must be added to the brake cable. That’s easy.

2) there is a small threaded hole on the bottom side for mounting a thumb button. It is unnoticeable.
